    Former Employee - Intern in Savannah, GA

    I worked at Gulfstream Aerospace as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Co-ops and interns get great incentives. Furnished apt. is provided at a VERY low rate ~200/month.

    Engaging program. Plenty of opportunity to network. You learn a lot.

    Savannah and Tybee beach are fun.

    Cons

    Occasional mundane tasks, slightly underpaid, co-ops get preferential treatment over interns, lack of strong work procedure can be frustrating.

    Savannah isn't for everyone. It's hot and southern.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many meetings and metrics.

    Current Employee - Quality Engineer II in Savannah, GA

    I have been working at Gulfstream Aerospace full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Not only am I able to contribute to building a product that makes me proud when I see it at airports and flying overhead, I work with fellow employees who are honest and dedicated to a quality product for customers.
    --Very competitive pay
    --Good benefits
    --Upper management who listens and invests in their employees
    --Middle management who are empowered to promote from within

    Cons

    I don't see any blatant cons...
    -- Companies contracted to provide medical insurance have required employees to jump thru hoops to be reimbursed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep investing in employees. Good job!

    Former Employee - Procurement in Savannah, GA

    I worked at Gulfstream Aerospace as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Gulfstream Aerospace is a great company, 4 10 hour days is a bonus. Compensation is very competitive with a great match in 401K that is immediately vested. There are a lot of learning opportunities with classes offered and other programs.

    Cons

    There tends to be silos when working with different department. It can be difficult to get information/help from other departments as a lot of employees have been there for awhile and are hesitant to helping.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage cross departmental interaction to continue growing company.

    I have been working at Gulfstream Aerospace full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay is decent for the area (Savannah, GA).

    Cons

    Culture leaves a lot to be desired. Hard work is expected, and not usually appreciated or rewarded. Lots of talented people, unfortunately stuck because management knows they don't have employment options in the local market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start living the leadership competency model. Stop the incompetent managers from bullying to get results. Recognize the people who have been loyal and hardworking.

    A few bad political apples here too. Very important to find a supportive manager.

    I have been working at Gulfstream Aerospace as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Being a part of the production of the most innovative and top of the line aviation.

    Cons

    Long hours are included, the pay is hourly so this could be a positive or negative thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management rarely communicates with the assembly crew. I urge them to better network with the guys on the floor which will help the company grow in culture.
